Friday Fashion: Angela Adams

Once again, devoid of anything to post for this Friday Fashion, Design*Sponge has come to my rescue. I've been introduced to Angela Adams, and I think I'm in love. Her designs, everything from apparel to home decor, are lively and bright. The colors are intense and the lines crisp. Allow me to wax poetic in the vein of Maria from The Sound of Music: These are a few of my favorite things.I'm not sure I am Boho-chic enough to sport such relaxed grace, but this Manfred/Turquoise Tunic for $125 certainly tempts me to try. I think this shape could look lovely on any woman, regardless of size (available in 4-14), and the color is simply stunning.If you're looking for a more simple ensemble but still want a punch of color and sharp design, try one of her Mini Totes for $45 (I'm a sucker for tiny bags!). These come in green, black, and orange, and look both sturdy and sweet.Boy, do I love a good pillow. These Pod/Sprout beauties cost $85 (each), and the pattern entrances me. It's like a stylized peacock, slightly muted. I really think these would look amazing on our couches. Now how to convince Husband that we simply must have at least $340 worth of pillows...?Have I ever mentioned how much I love to send and receive cards? No? Well, perhaps now would be the time to mention such a fact. I don't need much of an excuse to scour the Hallmark aisle or settle in with my colorful paper and scrapbooking goodies and create my own. And wouldn't receiving one of these Lulu Stationary cards ($8.95 for the set) brighten someone's day? I guess what I'm trying to say is, please send me mail. Preferably colorful, well-designed mail. Immediately. Thank you.I can't tell you how hard it was to pick my favorite rug. This rug at least ranks very high. It is a Nasturtium/Dusk rug. The largest size, 9 x 12 (go big or go back to your comfortable dwelling), is $1,950. Unfortunately, a $2,000 rug is a little salty for my soup. I think I would have to settle for the $5 yarn card:

How many of these do you think it would take to create an entire rug...?

Happy Friday, everyone. May you all have a relaxing, uneventful weekend!
